We’re very pleased to share with you the news that out of 643 nominees, Daniel is now one of twelve finalists on the shortlist for the Prix Pictet Award. The theme for this 4th cycle of the award is “Power.” His photograph, Oil Spill #4, was chosen on the cover of the Prix Pictet book corresponding to the exhibition that will tour internationally in 2012-2014. It’s a bit of an understatement to say that Daniel is honored to be considered. He’ll be awaiting the winning announcement by Kofi Annan at the Prix Pictet’s award ceremony in London on October 9th. Our fingers are firmly crossed until then!
For those of you less familiar, the Prix Pictet, sponsored by the Swiss bank C.E. Pictet, is the world’s first prize dedicated to photography and sustainability. It has a unique mandate – to use the power of photography to communicate vital messages to a global audience. Entrants are nominated by a panel of photo industry leaders, heightening both the exclusivity and prestige of the winners.
